Big news here!!! We are making more than just spun cotton!! There's a new baby brewing too! Granted I don't have much creative control over the finished product, but we can't wait to meet him or her!! I'm somewhere around 4 months right now and the baby is due the day after Christmas!! I was born on Thanksgiving, so we just might get another holiday baby. We'll find out if it's a boy or girl on August 1st. We are over the moon to add to our little family and can't wait to introduce him or her to all of you!
But that's not all the big news!! Something else we are just over the moon about...Ben has officially partnered up with me at Vintage by Crystal! He left his other job (they were sad to see him go) so he could help me here full time (he's packaging up orders as we speak), especially after the baby arrives...heavens knows how much trouble I have keeping up with things as it is! He's already completed his first week here and already it's been great and I've gotten so much more done. He's very organized (way more than me) and has great attention to detail and is such a sweetheart on top of it all. When corresponding from now on, you will get a response from either him or me....us. He'll be packaging up orders, taking most of the photos, prepping blog posts (so excited about that...there should be much more going on here from now on!), and taking care of all the business-y things. My job? Making!! When the baby comes, we'll both be on business and baby duty and baby will be spending the days in the studio with us. A happy little family (with hopefully very little bickering...lol). So excited!!
One last little thing...Ben will be finishing up lots of projects that I started, both big and small...including changing my name from Hanehan to Sloane. Sniff, sniff...sad to see my maiden name completely go once and for all, but it's time. I've officially been Crystal Sloane for quite some time now.
I hope you like our news!! :)
